When is a breakdown a breakthrough?
When it convinces someone who has “soldiered through” deeply-challenging life events and depression
that it’s ok to take off the mask and ask for help and support.
In today’s episode, when a social-media influencer known for her jokes and sarcasm
“gets real” about life’s challenges, including her depression, her post touches a nerve and goes viral.
Now, in addition to being funny, Shannon (aka @OfficialShannyPants)
talks online about her mental health, therapy, meds,
and the need to reach out for help and support when needed.
